As a visual artist, Anna Schimkat develops her work on the boundary between sculpture and sound. She is entering the field of sound art with her (often large scale public art) installations and performances. She composes spaces which sharpen perception and thereby enforce the perceiver’s action. Her sound materials are self-built instruments and field recordings of her main instrument: The world surrounding us.

In each respective context, Schimkat is interested in the processes, causes and rules of natural, social and cultural realities. One main focus for her is to work with sound in the context of space and its converse, space in the context of sound. This creates site-specific, accessible and physically sensual rooms and sound installations that interact with their respective contexts.
